PlayStation VR Bundle will run $500, pre-orders next Tuesday

PlayStation VR.

The PlayStation VR bundle is going to run $500, but it’s actually a good goddamn deal. Good enough to get me to adopt a technology I don’t really want, and quietly fear? No. But for anyone looking to get into the game, it seems well-priced as fuck.

Oculus-Rift. (1)

Phew! I was worried I was going to impulse buy an Oculus Rift. Would have really cheesed off my wife, and probably not been used very much. Well! The price for the rig has been revealed to be $600, which makes it even too rich for my economically irresponsible ass (for the moment).
